Re: Connect to sql server

Hi Islam,

This comes from the standard SQL Server naming convention. Example:

Data Source=server;Initial Catalog=myDataBase;User ID=myUsername;Password=myPassword;

or for SQL Express

Data Source=server\SQLEXPRESS;Initial Catalog=myDataBase;User ID=myUsername;Password=myPassword;
